Advertising from Yesteryear…The Tandy 1000 SL Computer

Once upon a time the Tandy Corporation (better known as Radio Shack) controlled a significant portion of the personal computing market, thanks to their easy-to-use PCs and an abundance of stores across North America.  That time has come and gone, first by the phasing out of the Color Computer line, and then as the Tandy 1000 line breathed its last in .

Sometimes an old advertisement or advert comes along, and it speaks to where we once were.  Today’s advertising from yesteryear is for the Tandy 1000 SL, a 5.25″-based computer running a 8086 microprocessor at 8 MHz with an astounding 384K RAM.  Enjoy!
